South Dakota Sports Betting Background

Currently, South Dakota has legal retail sports betting.

A measure to legalize online sports betting in South Dakota faltered in February. The House State Affairs committee voted 10-3 to kill a bill that would have brought the question of online legalization before voters during the November 2022 election. Under the prospective ballot measure, online sportsbooks would have to be controlled by or partnered with one of the four Deadwood casinos that currently offer the state’s only legal wagers.

The South Dakota Senate passed the bill earlier in February by one vote. An online sports betting measure could still appear on the 2022 ballot if it garners 33,921 signatures before May 3, though chances of that are slim.

There is another way you can put your sports knowledge to the test. PrizePicks is an app where you can choose if a player will go over or under certain stats for the duration of a given game. Action Network users can claim a deposit bonus at PrizePicks for up to $100!
